Some time back reports confirmed that Pawan Kalyan will be doing ‘Gabbar Singh 2’ but it was unclear about who would weild megaphone for it. Since Harish Shankar directed ‘Gabbar Singh’ everyone in the industry and the general public guessed that he would direct the sequel too. Harish too gave a clue through his tweet “Me and Bandla Ganesh never spoke about GabbarSingh -2 ; Power Star will decide " Everything " about GabbarSingh-2; I mean I Dnt fix for " GabbarSingh in hyd " title ; I have a Crazy title for the sequel ... Will let you know when time permits”.
However, due to cold war between power star and Bandla Ganesh-Harish Shankar, ‘Rachcha’ director Sampath Nandi grabbed the golden opportunity. Yes, Pawan had reportedly chosen Sampath Nandi to direct the sequel and Sarath Muraar for producing it. More details are awaited. Meanwhile Pawan Kalyan is currently busy with his upcoming untitled film in Trivikram combination. ‘Gabbar Singh 2’ will go on the sets soon after completion of this film.
